that is apparently unraveling. harris is watching breaking news for us today. harris, what do you have? >> jon, the big question is whether or not his defense attorneys will actually ask for this case and the charges to be dropped, and what the judge will say about that, or, if there's some other reason for them to meet. you know what, what we're learning is there are details that have come out about the accuser in this case, and her past, that even had the prosecution now asking questions about this woman. questions that this trial could hinge on, because she is their witness. the only way that they can really press sexual assault charges against dominic strauss-kahn is with her testimony, convincingly, so it has been said, by prosecutors up until now. will defense attorneys for dominic strauss-kahn then ask this judge to dismiss the charges based on the fact that the prosecution may or may not have enough evidence to go forward. we're watching this, that meeting is coming up, those manhattan prosecutors and defense lawyers, meeting in an office. as soon as we know what -- what has happened,

. jon huntsman hosted meet and greets in florida. the former utah governor calling the $14 trillion debt a cancer in america. in terms of reaching a deal, he said cooler heads would prevail while many candidates have focused their campaign efforts in iowa, huntsman emphasized why he wants to focus on florida. >> if you own florida, you woow the presidency. >> michele bachmann opened her iowa campaign headquarters yesterday. there she told voters not to believe -- saying the government has enough revenue to continue making payments. she also launched the t eed atte president's economic plan. >> we're now two years into president obama's recovery. president obama's recovery has a 9.2% unemployment rate. this is not working for millions of unemployed americans. >> speaking of michele bachmann, there's controversy surrounding a pledge supported by the congresswoman. bachmann signed a marriage vow that's drawn up by the conservative group the family leader which suggested that african-american children may have been better off during slavery. rick santorum also committed to that pledge. the g
not expect. jon huntsman said in may he would not self-finance his presidential campaign even though he's rich enough to do that, at least in large part. today he didn't have to file any campaign fund-raising information, because he hasn't been declared for very long, but did say he raised about $4 million and his campaign would just say that he did contribute to his own coffering here. all they'll say, it wasn't a majority. only that what he gave is less than half. jon huntsman is, at least, sort of self-financing here and declaring it, and letting it be known. is that worrying in terms of his chances as a real candidate or encouraging because he has his own money to spend if he wants to? >> first of all, i don't understand the original statement. don't make a statement that you know can be disproved when the sec reports come out. and in terms of his fund-raising, i'm inclined to say, wait until the next cycle. i mean, jon huntsman has only been around for a little bit. i think his opening is that republicans who are not bachmann republicans decide that in the end he might have a bette

night at a philadelphia fund-raiser. the g.o.p. asked why he wasn't working on a deficit deal. jon cornyn was also at a fund-raiser last night. good morning, happy fourth of july weekend to you. can't we all just get along? >> apparently not in washington. listen, i think the president has a lot of reason to be frustrated with republicans. he offered them tax cuts back in the spring when they forced a government shutdown or threatening to force a government shutdown. he's put everything on the table. they have shown an unwillingness to compromise. it is an important issue in these economic times. it's not going to put a single american to work. it's not going to keep a single american in their home. it's time for them to do what they need to do, put it to bed and move along. >> can you criticize them when members of your own party are walking aassaying i'm not going to be part of this discussion anymore, until i get what i want. >> the republicans are trying to take a stand to not include tax. no one is shedding a tear about staying over fourth of july. republicans are digging in a

mission she is doing is she has teamed up with mitt romney, and she is firing at jon huntsman, former governor of utah. basically, what is going on here? >> she's a finance chair for mitt romney, yet she is criticizing jon huntsman for being a career politician. that got them very upset. as the waves will be made here. he is a native of palo alto. he's a guy who is a good communicator. we've met with him here in san francisco. >> he's not the only one hitting the california circuit. we have the texas governor, mr. kerry. >> a series of behind closed door meetings with california republican legislatures. >> keep in mind, rick. the governor of texas now has the reputation of being the one governor who has steered his state in such a way that it has been the job growth. the highest percentage of states holding job growth has been. in texas. at the same time, he took on the republican establishment when he tried to elimination last time around. he is into this thing. if he wasn't governor, he would probably be with the church. so he has a number of factors that seem to produce him as a qu

. tim pawlenty expected to bring in less than 5 million. jon huntsman raised a little over 2 million throwing his own money at 4 million. ron paul told supporters he's raised over $4 million. the number though everybody is watching what will the michele bachmann number be? she can transfer money from the house campaign. was she able to get in the internet and direct mail money in in time? will the number be forth of 5 million? will it be north of 10? that would be somewhat of a surprise. meanwhile, a siren for the supporters of rick perry, he's scouting out a vendor pot at the straw poll. it's our understanding perry won't get into the race until after he has the national day of prayer on august 6th. the straw poll is basically a week later. he wouldn't get in before then bupt the straw poll could be a way to see if that's the launching point and he gets in sometime in late august in time for those three debates that mitt romney and company are competing in in september. meanwhile, though there are no firm numbers yet, we're expecting a big quarter from team obama. fundraisers are pr

,000,000.20000000 dollars, the next four candidates according to these figures, tim pawlenty, ron paul, jon pawlenty, ron paul, jon huntsman, that does not even add up to 15 million. it is still seen as a slow money raising cycle? guest: because mitt romney had done the things that were necessary to get off to a fast start. relative to the rest of the field, however, when you look at this point in the 2008 cycle, mitt romney raised more than $20 million. rudy giuliani, $17 million. john mccain, the eventual nominee, $11 million. three big guns out front, competing against an open democratic field, we did not know that president obama's fund-raising operation would be the juggernaut that it turned out to be. at that point, with an unknown opponent, there was more fund- raising by individual candidates and folks using the gop nomination than we see at this point in a comparable cycle where we do know who the opponent is going to be. they know that money will be important and yet the numbers are substantially behind. it is disappointing. it has to be a letdown for the republican field. host: kenneth vogel w

but not taking part in the ames straw poll. jon huntsman is the same way. viewing iowa not necessary to his path. is that a dangerous move? >> i think is it very dangerous. if you look to the last cycle and think what happened with rudy giuliani and the guys that decided we can bypass the social conservative, a fool's game. you don't gain momentum. south carolina is sitting right there and south carolina is going to bring back the social conservative issues. by the way, rick perry is a guy who is strong on abortion. a guy who has a strong position in gay marriage and he appeals to the social conservative. if he is there with the money he's a major player. >> bret: agree? >> yeah, the potential is he invites somebody else to the dance not making a big play in iowa. if he made a big play and won it, won caucus, it could be over before it started. it makes strategic sense on one level that he dumps resources in there and had nothing to show for it except for embarrassment to overcome the rest of it there is a risk there from a front-runner to skip an early state. >> bret: we haven't talked about sa

gingrich, jon huntsman, senator santorum is not even on here. he is at 2%. plenty of 3%. steve? >> yeah, this is a very tough news for tim pawlenty. one reason i think he held the press conference last night, he needs to do everything he can to keep himself in the discussion and in the news. so he is giving major economic speech. gives a major foreign policy speech at a time when most strategists would say it's early to be doing that. but he needs to do that to make news and renape the discussion men your numbers are as paltry as they've been -- discussion when your numbers are as paltry as they've been. >> bret: anecdotally talking to people in iowa yesterday anthe day before, he still has support in iowa from folks who look at him as an alternative to mitt romney and people who like him. >> i think so. he does. he is having trouble expanding and gaining traction in a wider audience. i think one of the ways that it shows itself and the way he reacted in minnesota today. he didn't st protect his flank on this by avoiding people attributing what is happening to him. he got toh. he said i
, that is where the numbers fall right off of a cliff. tim pawlenty, and ron paul, and jon huntsman all coming in under $5 million. pawlenty in fact is seeing the fund-raising numbers closer to herman cain's than mitt comeny's, but newt gingrich is going in the wrong direction, because he is reported to be $1 million in debt. and as for barack obama, they are saying that his is certain to meet the goals when the forms are filed next week. obama officials say they have nearly 500,000 individual donors give this quarter which is nearly five times the number that the bush/cheney re-election bid began with in 2003. now, into the money chase with "huffington post" social impact reporter, and analyst alex wagner. alex, the republicanings knew they would be outspent by president obama, and are they prepared to be this outspent by obama? >> no, this is not good news. that internal memo, romney had set a $50 million goal, and the fact that she is not meeting the 2007 numbers is ugly, and you compare it with the fact that there are predictions that the obama campaign will make $1 billion in fund-raising
tim pawlenty and jon huntsman are barely hanging on. and newt gingrich's campaign is on life support. so is this it? or is michele bachmann emerging as the tea party's battering ram against the willard mitt romney? joining me now is richard wolfe and with me, editor at large for salon.com, joan walsh. let me ask you first. is the bachmann threat a real threat, richard? >> well, she is a threat herself to mitt romney. but i actually think the space that she represents is more of a threat. look, she needs to call donald trump to figure out how this movie ends. can you rise very quickly on this kind of platform and then you sink very quickly. but what she is showing and what trump showed before her is that there is space for a populist insurgeant type of tea party candidate who can capture the spirit driving the base here. i personally don't think it will be her. i think it is going to be someone like rick perry or sarah palin but she is peaking too early. the one thing you don't do is too early in the summer before. >> are they waiting joan for another tea party hero to come from the w
